Petit St. Vincent Resort in Petit Saint Vincent, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
Softly undulating hills covered by lush tropical foliage meet sugary white beaches on the dreamy 115-acre private island of Petit St. Vincent. This idylic island, also known as PSV, lies about 40 miles south of Saint Vincent in the Caribbean isles of the Grenadines. All 22 generously spaced, freestanding villas and cottages at this chic ecologically sustainable resort front the beach or are scattered around the island's bluffs boasting magnificent ocean views. Plushly designed lounges, indoor and outdoor dining areas, sun decks or gardens afford utmost privacy. Modern comforts include air conditioning, Bose iPod docking stations, Nespresso machines, and high-end bath amenities and towels. Purposely, the villas and cottages have no televisions or Internet connectivity for a chance to truly unplug from the stressful daily grind for a while.
With a two-to-one staff-to-guest ratio, the exclusive barefoot escape offers attentive, tailor-made services. Active guests can rent sail boats or kayaks from the water sports center to troll the crystalline turquoise waters, jog along the outdoor calisthenics fitness trail or play a round of tennis on the lighted tennis court. Zen-seekers may try no-impact workouts at the two secluded Yoga Pavilions facing Conch Bay or be pampered at the treetop Balinese-managed Hillside Spa in one of the four serene open-air rooms. Treatments like a Shirodhara Ayurvedic massage using a series of aromatic oils or a rejuvenating Marni Body Scrub with lemongrass; jasmine and ginger are guaranteed to soothe away pesky muscle aches. The luxury resort also has two dining options. Patrons at the more casual Beach Restaurant and Goatie's Bar can dig their toes in the sand while wielding an ice-cold locally brewed Hairoun Beer adjacent to the live lobster pool (Tip: Lobster season on the island runs from November until April). Elegant Pavilion Restaurant set atop a hill with views of the quaint harbor lends itself perfectly for a twosome romantic dinner. Gourmet cuisine at both eateries features fresh produce, herbs and even eggs from the resort's own organic garden and chickens. Slightly off the beaten path, this sundrenched tropical resort is the epitome of a luxe Caribbean hideaway.

Reviews for Petit St. Vincent Resort
We stayed here for a week in June, 2015 to celebrate a belated 10 year anniversary. Yes, that was over 2 years ago now, but we still have wonderful memories. It was a beautiful place - loved the service, the cottages and the beach bar. We try to make Banana Cows at home but they just don't compare......it was heavenly and peaceful, which was exactly what we were looking for. We had a cottage on the bluff and the views and privacy were perfect. We spent our days hiking around the island in the morning and lounging on the West End beach for lunch, followed by afternoon cocktails at the Beach Bar.

My wife and I wanted to get away from everything and celebrate our 8th Anniversary. What an experience! First Class all the way. Starting with Lisa in the US Office, she was so helpful and informative. We had to change our dates one time and she handled everything for us. We opted for the charter from BGI to Union Island. Was so nice. The American Airlines flight from Miami to Barbados was early and the Mustique Airways personnel met us (Joan and assistant) as we got off the flight. They checked our docs and the one person went and got our luggage. Joan said the pilot and the plane are here so you guys are good to go now! 2 hours early! Flight was nice at 8,000 feet. After arriving at union Island we took a short ride to the boat launch. Boarded the boat for the short 15 minute ride to PSV. On arrival we were met by Matt, the General Manager with cold scented hand towels and a welcome cocktail. He gave us a nice tour and answered any questions. We requested a "very" private beach and we certainly got one. For 7 days we were pampered like never before. The staff is incredible! The food is excellent. 2 days we went to the West End Beach and were all by ourselves. They will pack you a lunch, drinks and plenty of towels and ice and you can spend all day there. Probably one of the prettiest beaches anywhere. Most of the days we ate our breakfast on our private deck. Dinners you have the option of the Main Dining or the Beachside Restaurant. My best tip is to bring water shoes. Lots of shoreline with rocky entrances to the water. The snorkeling is beyond beautiful. Light blue water turns to dark blue water and the deeper you go the cooler the water gets! It was like swimming in an aquarium. The cottages are awesome. If you want on the beach, they have that. If you want way up with spectacular views, they have that. Whatever you fancy PSV can make it happen! We are already trying to work out our dates for our return trip! Thank You PSV!

My wife & I visited Petite St Vincent for our 26th Anniversary and it was everything we hoped for and more. If you want to get away from everything - there's no phone, TV and Internet is only at the main office - this is the place! From the greeting at the dock by Matt with welcome drinks to the outstanding service, this was probably the best vacation ever! Pros: -Greeting by the PSV representative at the airport upon arrival in Barbados was extremely helpful and he made for a very smooth transition - he was also there for departure. -Greeting and welcome drink delivered by GM Matt at the dock upon arrival was a very nice touch - he was also at the dock when we were leaving. It was a very nice touch. -PSV also packed a lunch for the journey home. -It felt like we had the entire island to ourselves, as there are only 22 cottages and it was only half filled during our time. - We went snorkeling right off our beach - under the dock with the hut was full of all kinds of fish and a coral reef. It was spectacular! - The food and drink delivery service was great. You can have breakfast, lunch and dinner delivered and the food was excellent! -The accommodations were very good. We had a 1 bedroom cottage with a very large bedroom with a king bed, sitting area with a couch, tables & chair for dining and minibar. - The food was very good overall. The only disappointment was a few items on the menu were out of season. Lots of fresh fish! -Drinks were also very good, but be careful of the Rum Punch:-) -The staff was very attentive and friendly. - We took a fishing trip with captain Maurice and caught several barracuda, yellow tail and a few others. Maurice also took us on a tour of the other islands in the area; one of which is the location where Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed. - While ocean Kayaking, we saw a huge sea turtle surface several times. The water was pristine, clear, blue water. _ If you're looking for a little exercise, you can hike to the top of the island. It was a good workout and amazing view at the top. Cons: -Bring your bug spray if you go to the West End beaches. The beaches are beautiful, but if you plan to sit under the canopy in the shade, the bugs will get you. -Even though the beach bar had it on the menu, there was no calamari or lobster. We were told it was out of season. - They ran out of diet coke and it took several days to replenish the supply. Somehow, a few of the really great staff members were able to find some. This was an amazing trip and I highly recommend it! Especially, if you want to get away with someone very special.

We stayed here for 8 days after a week or so in Barbados in early July. I have to say I looked dthrough a lot of the reviews on this site and always look at a selection of all the various responses good and bad. I have to say that this really is a very, very special place. I saw no evidence of any dirt as had been mentioned by some reviewers and everything was immaculate from start to finish. It seems that every morning and evening the beaches are raked to within an inch of their lives, the rooms are immaculate and get re-varnished every year when they close. Even at the end of the year, as we were, they were extremely clean and in excellent condition. We were in room 11 right on the beach and were upgraded to a two bedroom villa and it was enormous. we must have had close to 50m of private beach access. This doesn't seem to matter though as the whole beach was empty most of the time anyway. There were some comments about the beach with the villas being rocky, which is true, but this is mother nature and doesn't always conform to everyone's wishes. Nevertheless there are access points to the sea, which has some good snorkling. They dive team and staff are slowly planting new coral on the reefs which has started this year and will show its returns in the coming years and is an excellent idea. The western beach is simply gorgeous. pure white sands rolling down to the ocean which is bath temperature. The lawns are beatiful and the grounds have just the right mix of natural wilderness and tamed, manicured perfection. It is a real getaway and there days when we didn't see anyone at all. None of this would really matter if the service is bad as this is the quickest way for me to get irritated. I have to say that the flag system is great and they tour the island every 30 minutes to fulfil your requests and if there is anything urgent then you can phone through to room service. I think we only called once, which was for more drinks. there was always plenty of ice as this seemed to get topped up three times a day. We brought a few bottles of my favourite champagne with us and one day asked them to set it up at one of the secluded beach huts and they picked us up and everything was prepared for us. I have to say that Matt, the Manager does an incredible job at ensuring that everything runs smoothly and we had absolutely nothing to complain about. When asked if there was anything they could improve we just stared blankly at each other. The food was very good, it had a slightly asian flavour due to the indonesian chef who Matt stole from one of his previous hotels. The food is very good. It is not michelin starred, but I think that would be too much anyway. It was always warm, well cooked and there is a good variety of food in the two restaurants. we didn;t get bored of the food at all and did find some real favourites. The tuna ceviche is to die for and the seafood linguine is also extremely good. lots of fresh fish as you might expect. we went sailing on beauty on our last day which was a real highlight and I woudl definitely recommend this. Very romatic and Simba and his mate treated us extremely well. Be careful with the rum punch it is mixed by Simba and it is not lacking in punch! All in all, we go away three to four times a year and do not hold back on our selections wherever they are in the world, yet this is probably the first place i would really want to return to. The staff are exceptional and I cannot praise them highly enough. Everyone was efficient, friendly and helpful. Present but not obtrusive in any way. Dan at the dive centre is a gem and he taught my partner her open water, which she loved. He is very patient and effective and we both enjoyed the diving at the reefs around the resort. Well done Matt and thank you to everyone at PSV who all made our stay truly memorable.

While sailing the Grenadine Islands the past ten days, we stopped and anchored for a night at PSV. The approach to this beautiful island is spectacular with a beautiful white sand beach and lovely waterside bar and restaurant. We took the dingy in for drinks and were so impressed with the staff, service and quality of the various mixed cocktails we made reservations for dinner. At dinner we were seated at a large organic mahogany table prefect for our group of five with a thatched roof overhead with our sandaled feet in the sand next to the beach. The weather was prefect and the breeze delightful. Roland, our waiter, did a great job helping us negotiate the drink and wine menus and when we ordered our meal he suggested the catch of the day, either swordfish or Mahi Mahi. I am a sucker for fresh fish and generally don't order it except in locations where I can count on it being fresh or catch it myself and take to a restaurant to be prepared. The fish, both specie, were far from fresh and no one was able to eat more than a few bites. It was a bad way to end what started as an exciting visit to an enchanting island we were excited about returning to for a land side visit. We can not blame Roland, he did a great job and know he was just selling what the kitchen was pushing. But we can blame management for allowing the deception of fresh to be "sold" to unsuspecting visitors. This experience soured us on a return visit to PSV.
